Hydrate your holiday season
Our bodies need hydration for so many reasons. In busy days we may not take time to drink water (or a cup of herbal tea on a cold day). Sometimes those hunger pangs that drive us to the cookie jar are really a signal from our body telling us it is thirsty. Drink a glass of water or a cup of coffee or tea (preferably decaffeinated) if you’re feeling hungry apart from mealtimes. If after 30 minutes you’re still hungry, then have a healthy snack. You may be surprised how often the water will satisfy you and how much better your body and mind responds when it is hydrated.
Prayer: Jesus, You are our Living Water and we are reminded daily how we can’t live very long without your protection, provision and guidance. You created our bodies to need physical water regularly to protect and revive our skin, muscles, organs and our mental focus. Place in us a desire for water and to appreciate how good we feel when we are hydrated. Thank you for providing for us body, soul and spirit by always being there for us, and for the blessing of living where we have abundant availability of fresh water.

The timing for this was perfect. I just said to myself, I didn’t drink enough water 💦 today , I have to refill my water bottle 😊
